Well, there are our MoPlay ratings 2018 and here comes our MoPlay sports review. If you are fans of Manchester United or Watford, then you are already aware of MoPlay. They are the official partners of these two major football clubs, showing that they are serious competitors in the sportsbook gambling market. With this in mind, we present to you our MoPlay sports review, assessing whether this site has what it takes to compete with the big names of bookies on the UK market. Our MoPlay ratings 2018 give you an idea of our opinion, but what about some key details to add depth to this overview?
The company is based in Gibraltar and doesn’t offer much detail on the site about its background. It is owned by the multinational Addison Global, which is probably why it could land such lucrative affiliations with top sports clubs.
Well, as the name suggests, the focus of this site is on mobile play. The app is excellent, available on both iOS and Android and offering the chance for a quick bet on the go. The target audience of the site are millennials who are used to instant gratification. Therefore, a lot of emphasis is placed on this mobile experience.
The website is neat and looks like a standard dashboard for a sportsbook. It looks similar to many other new sites coming to market, just with a different colour scheme. This still works, even if the site does look like many others you will visit. The sports covered are listed down the right-hand side and the player’s betting slip is down the right. The centre pane is dominated by the in-play markets and the top bets. It is a simple formula but one that works and has become intuitive for the online gambler.
The betting, the odds and the prices
What is impressive is the list of sports offered – this is always something we should take seriously in a MoPlay sports review. There are some unique options, including Gaelic football, even surfing has markets on this site. Importantly, there is also virtual sports, which gets its own tab at the top of the screen, another nod to the millennial market for this site.
There is the obvious dominance of football, particularly Premiership matches. However, it is not surprising, as this is the major interest of most people choosing to bet on sport. The best prices are generally offered on Champions League matches, and other televised events. They also offer price guarantees on UK and Irish horseracing, which is interesting, as at least one other major competitor in the sports betting sector does the same.
What is worth praising in this MoPlay sports review is the impressive depth to the football markets, particularly if you enjoy La Liga. However, they also cover the Zambia Super League and Uzbekistan Cup. Not heard of these? Well, there is what makes this site unique – they have used their imagination – and maybe showed an interest in a more global audience in this multi-cultural world.
There is an impressive array of in-play options. When dipping in we found 180 live markets available for the punter to have some instant gratification – and a good proportion of these were in American Football. What will be disappointing to a lot of gambling fans is that there are no live streams on the site. We guess this is why the best market prices are offered on televised events, as this is when they are more likely to attract their core audience to the site. We have to take this into account in our MoPlay ratings 2018 because we feel it is a major omission from the site, especially considering the link to Manchester United and no streaming even of MUTV.
Promotions and customer service
There is a new players welcome bet to the site, with a free bet of £20 split over two bets. To qualify you only have to stake a minimum £10 bet and as soon as this is settled the bets will be available. This is mediocre in comparison to competitors. This is nothing to write home about in our MoPlay sports review.
However, our MoPlay ratings 2018 are still positive because they work hard on other promotions and bonuses. There is Club ProMo, which is a reward for players who take out a treble or higher on football matches. This is only a free bet of £5 but you get it every week if you place this sort of bet. It is also worth visiting the site time and again because they have daily bonuses and price boosts, which are meant to entice a loyal following. This is particularly true with Champions League match days, if you can’t afford the time to visit every day.
Customer support is what you would expect from a major global company. There are lots of ways to deposit, including a number of e-wallets such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill. Deposits are processed immediately but you might be frustrated by withdrawals which will take between 24 hours and up to as long as five days. You need to choose your deposit method carefully if you want to take account of withdrawal times, as you have to use the same method for both.
MoPlay have created a Solution Squad to solve any of your problems via live chat, email or post. This is more commonly known as customer service – and the company don’t make it easy to find this help – which is hidden away down at the bottom of the screen. Maybe the super hero squad are stealthy in the use of their powers?
Our overall MoPlay Sports Review
MoPlay has an obvious business plan to hit all the key factors that would appeal to a millennials market. Mobile play is preferred in the design of the brand, as shown by the simplicity of the website. There is an emphasis on instant gratification – but also some intriguing markets offered that you won’t find anywhere else, which we really liked when researching for our MoPlay sports review.
